NYC Happenings: Paul’s on Time Square
Paul Nicaj and Dino Redzic know hospitality like the back of their hands and they proved just how well they know it at the grand opening party for their new restaurant “Paul’s on Time Square.” The two industry giants held a warm and welcoming event at the Hilton Garden on 42nd Street last Wednesday to celebrate their newest project, and the hotel’s featured restaurant, described as a destination for Italian fare with a global touch. FullSizeRender(2)

The party kicked off several stories up in a cozy lounge with a fireplace, tables for both communal and private seating, and an outdoor terrace. Champagne and wine was poured and complimented the extravagant spread of Italian meats and cheeses as well as an assortment of fruits and nuts.FullSizeRender(3)
The main dish was a whole baked branzino, delicately cut and served to guests whom were eager to try. The hor dourves passed included mini caprese skewers, bruschetta bites, crab cakes, and margharita pizza slices. All seemed to enjoy the food, the atmosphere, and the company.

Drawing a crowd next to the main bar was New York City’s first “SmartTender,” a revolutionary automated bartending system. Guests, myself included, were instructed on how to try the new bar toy. The touchscreen displays the list of spirit options. By touching the screen to choose, the patron then selects a mixer such as cranberry juice, pineapple juice, Coca-Cola, etc. Next, the SmartTender prompts the guest to choose an additive if preferred. Those listed were seltzer, orange bitters and lime juice, to name a few. The final step in the process is the option of adding an additional shot of alcohol and then it’s time to pour. The SmartTender registers the guests’ choices and pours a proportionally correct beverage into a glass positioned below the machine’s dispenser. Viola! A cocktail made to your liking in 30 seconds.FullSizeRender(4)

With my new “smart” made drink in hand, I made my way through the crowd and came upon Paul and Dino’s private table where they sat with, whom I presumed to be, close friends and family. I sat at a table close by and glanced in their direction noticing the plates of meatballs, shrimp cocktail, and other dishes that filled the table. Everything looked delicious and I could not refrain myself from commenting on the spread that lay out in front of them.

My remark did not go unheard and was responded to by Paul and Dino offering me to indulge in the food before them. “Please, please, eat,” I heard either Paul or Dino exclaim, pushing the plates towards me. And although I was not entirely sure which of these gentlemen made this hospitable notion towards me, I was too pleasantly surprised by the gesture to care. To the guests and myself, the event was for Paul and Dino- to celebrate the opening of “Paul’s” and their success in the industry. Yet to Paul and Dino, as it became very clear to me then, the night was for their guests and their customers, and at any time, even at their own celebration, they would make sure to show great hospitality.FullSizeRender

Hamptons Eats: Hey there my Foodie Fans….Sag Harbor Food News Chatter..2014

As many of you are already aware Espresso has closed its doors for good what you did not know is the new owner is apparently an East Hampton local…Contrary to rumors circulating I am told this will not be a Vegetarian/Vegan cafe so everyone can take a deep breath and calm down. I have been told the new owner plans to open a Market Style with take-out Cafe, Brick-oven pizza, fresh healthy choices…moderate prices….Opening is slated for late April early May after much-needed renovations..

_DSC0270Page 63 rumor has that Chef James Carpentar  is coming to Sag Harbor. Chef Carpentar’s  resume includes East Hampton Point, Cittanova, the Living Room and Dellafeminas…a local celebrity chef…I hear that Page is also expanding with a marketplace of their own. Watch out Provisions you might just be getting some competition in Sag Harbor. Page might just be the talk of the Town this summer? There is a new Aquaponic growing system and grow room had 2 new additions. Over 250 of a variety of salad greens were planted.

Doppio the newcomer that bought last year’s popular Madison & Main Restaurant on Main Street in Sag Harbor looks like they are beginning their renovations. I was told when I visited the Huntington place that they were planning on opening in March; seems like that is not happening this month, maybe May. Madison & Main was incredibly busy last year, lets see if the new-comers can bring back that same vibe, but this year they will have some competition in the Harbor.

The biggest news however is B’Smith in Sag Harbor…It has been rumored that B’Smith’s in Sag Harbor  will not be opening their doors this summer. I remember when B’Smith’s opened in 1997, it was the place to be. African American’s who vacationed in the Hamptons would always choose B’Smith’s as the place to dine out. Dan,Barbara and their Managers have always supported the community and graciously offered their place to host a variety of community events. There is community chatter that a new Management team will be running the show this summer, according to Grub Street Richie Notar will be Opening HARLOW in Sag Harbor, a seafood Cuisine.  Richie Notar, the restaurateur who transitioned from his role as managing partner at Nobu two years ago to helm several new ventures, has taken over the waterfront space and plans to reopen in May as an East End outpost of his Lombardy Hotel restaurant Harlow. It is noted that Notar has also taken over the former Lenox Lounge space, which is rumored to be called Notar Jazz Lounge.

Will this be the Sag Harbor summer place to be? They do  have the BEST location in the Harbor. It is my hope that they will seek to have a relationship with the community and not just focus on the summer crowd.

The Nobu partner is also about to open a jazz club in Harlem.Photo: Patrick McMullan ..

Hey Turto il Giorno fans I have been told that they are opening a new location in Tribeca, I have yet to eat at the Sag Harbor location, this is on my agenda for the Spring. I will share my experience with all of you once I do._DSC0014

Where will you be hanging this summer in the Harbor…I will be at the place that makes the BEST Watermelon Martini’s!!! watermelon-martini

To snack or not to snack? Is it better to eat three square meals a day or 5-6 mini meals? Recent studies show that for better blood sugar control, and to help binge eating snacking can be a healthful thing to do. Eating healthy snacks, such as a piece of fruit, string cheese, a cup of yogurt, a small handful of nuts can enhance your overall diet.fruit

Healthy snacking helps you manage hunger by balancing blood sugar.
 Studies confirm that when adults or children skip breakfast, they tend to perform poorly both physically and mentally. Skipping breakfast usually leads to eating higher calorie foods and making poor food decisions due to the fact that the body needs fuel right away.

Unfortunately in America, skipping breakfast is very common, and skipping lunch may also follow that trend. It is always better for the body and your waist line to “front load” your food intake when your body needs it the most. A good rule of thumb is to eat about 50-60% of your daily food intake before 2pm. This is where planning your snacks throughout the morning and afternoon can be beneficial to your overall health. By making healthy snack choices, you can provide your body with the extra nutrients and energy that it needs. This can also help prevent binge eating episodes. yogurt

What is the perfect snack? The perfect snack depends on your individual tastes and preferences. There are no right or wrong food choices. It should be based on what you like, not what your friend is eating on her current fad diet.
There are no special formulas or magical foods to make your snack better then what you could get at your corner grocery store. One way that can help you make a better choice is to think of the components that make up a good snack. A little protein, a little carbohydrate, and a little good fat will provide you with a nutrient dense snack.
For instance, apple slices with a tablespoon of almond butter, or a half turkey sandwich on good quality whole grain bread, a slice of avocado, a little mustard, some lettuce and cucumber. Notice how these choices are specific and portioned out. A SNACK IS NOT A MEAL. A snack is an energy bridge that will get you through to your next meal. It helps prevent you from bingeing on whatever is in front of you when you get home from a hard day’s work.
Also if you do happen to snack in front of your computer or television, make sure you portion it out. Small bowls are great for this.

Remember… it’s a snack.
